Scheduled for the next 2021 spring, Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster is certainly one of the most anticipated titles by RPG fans. The game, developed by Atlus and SEGA, is the remastered version of the third installment of the series, first released in 2003 on PlayStation 2.
After a few months of silence from the software houses, in the last hours, Atlus has released a new series of information on the game and some new screenshots related to the DLC Maniax Pack, which will introduce the character of Dante within the game. The protagonist of Capcom’s Devil May Cry series will be present along with the DLC from the day the game is released in Japan, which is this October 29 on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
With a short press release, Atlus has announced what other additional content will be available for players to download, in addition of course to the Maniax Pack DLC already mentioned. First of all, it will be possible to download the Merciful difficulty free of charge, which will guarantee all players to proceed in the game without running into excessive difficulty.
It will also be possible to purchase the Little Master’s Mercy DLC for 350 yen, which will allow you to access an exclusive game map in which “Heavy Grimoires” and “Light Grimoires” are present as rewards, important tools needed to level up your character. The DLC Master’s Expectations, also costing 350 yen, introduces an additional map which, like the previous one, provides items that can be exchanged at the shop as prizes.
In addition, it will be possible to purchase packs containing the soundtracks of Shin Megami Tensei, Shin Megami Tensei II, Shin Megami Tensei IV, and Shin Megami Tensei IV Final, each for 220 yen from November 5th.
Finally, Atlus also announced the introduction of some new features. Among these, there is a puzzle game that will allow you to obtain important items once all 20 stages have been completed and a game mode called “Burial Chamber” in which it will be possible to challenge the bosses already defeated previously. Unlike the original title, game progress can be saved at any time.
Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster will release in Europe and the United States on PS4 and Nintendo Switch in the spring of 2021.
